I love collecting and painting small paintings. I call them minis. I have blogged about them often. Recently I shared ways to store and display these tiny pastels. I have another idea to add to the list. Turn your minis into ornaments! What a wonderful way to personalize the tree than with beautiful original art!
Making ornaments from mini paintings are simple! I slipped my painting into a clear bag with a piece of black foamcore backing. Next I cut a loop of twine and taped it to the back of the painting and voila! ....an ornament for the tree!
Painting your own minis can be a fun holiday project. I am going to paint my favorite landscapes for my decorations but it would be fun to do any number of themes. How about a bird tree or a flower tree? How about paintings of ornaments? The ideas are limited only by your imagination!
|Some twine, clear bags and foam core is all that is needed!|
I have just listed my latest min pastels in my Etsy shop. Any of them would make great ornaments! See them all in my shop HERE.https://www.etsy.com/shop/KarenMargulisFineArt
